BROOKVILLE — Jefferson County’s senior centers will reopen on Wednesday, July 1, with lunch available for those who want to eat in the dining room as well as those who prefer take-out.

Molly McNutt, executive director of the Jefferson County Area Agency on Aging, said, “We understand that not everyone is ready to come back into a social setting and may be more comfortable picking up their meal.”

Seniors wishing to have lunch, whether eating in the dining room or picking up a take-out meal, must call their senior center coordinator one day in advance. Donations for the meals are $2.50.

Jodie Deal, center coordinator at Heritage House, said, “We will only be serving lunch, at noon, the first two weeks. The week of July 22 we plan to slowly introduce some activities, depending on restrictions.”

Next week’s lunch menu includes:

  • Wednesday, July 1 — Spaghetti with marinara sauce and meatballs, tossed salad with dressing, Italian bread, pineapple and birthday cake.
  • Thursday, July 2 — BBQ chicken breast, potato salad, baked beans, dinner roll and warm apple crisp.
  • Friday, July 3 — All centers will be closed to celebrate the Fourth of July.

“We will not be resuming all activities that were happening before COVID-19 right away,” McNutt said. “We will keep up with cleaning and will be phasing activities back in a manner to ensure safety.”
